About this product
- DescriptionIn the context of two hundred years of American colonial control in the Pacific, Katherine Irwin and Karen Umemoto shed light on the experiences of today's inner city and rural girls and boys in Hawaii who face racism, sexism, poverty, and political neglect. Basing their book on nine years of ethgraphic research, the authors highlight how legacies of injustice endure, prompting teens to fight for dignity and the chance to thrive in America, a nation that the youth describe as inherently jacked up -rigged-and unjust. While the story begins with the youth battling multiple contingencies, it ends on a hopeful te with many of the teens overcoming numerous hardships, often with the guidance of steadfast, caring adults.
